Today’s Menu: Grilled Turkey and Swiss Cheese Sandwich w/ Tomato Soup

A very simple but hearty dinner tonight. I had Grilled Turkey and Swiss Cheese Sandwich w/ Tomato Soup. I used Aunt Millie’s Whole grain Bread topped with Oscar Mayer Carver Board Sliced Turkey, Sargento Ultra Thin Swiss Cheese, Amy’s Organic Low Fat Cream of Tomato Soup. To grill the bread I used I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Assembled the sandwich with a slice of Swiss, then Turkey, Kraft Reduced Fat w/ Olive Oil, and another slice of Swiss. Buttered the outside of the bread on bottom and top and grilled it in a small skillet till the cheese was starting to melt and bread was browned, flipped the sandwich one time.

The soup was Amy’s Organic Low Fat Cream of Tomato. Love this soup! Great creamy flavor and only110 calories and 19 carbs. For dessert Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla Ice Cream topped with Sliced Peaches. The Peaches are from South Carolina that we had frozen. These have got to be juciest and most delicious Peaches i have ever had! We only have 1 bag left in the freezer so I’m going to enjoy these before their gone.

Today’s Menu: New England Clam Chowder w/ Oyster Crackers and a Hot Hammy Cheese

 

A simple but flat out lip smacking good dinner tonight! New England Clam Chowder w/ Oyster Crackers and a Hot Hammy Cheese, Sounds good but tasted even better! My Clam Chowder wasn’t home made but was every bit as good. I used Campbell’s Chunky New England Clam Chowder with Hearty Potatoes. If you have a craving for Clam Chowder but don’t have the time or just want a simple way to prepare it give Campbells a try. Great taste, plenty of Clams and Potatoes, and in a nice thick stock. It has 210 calories and 23 carbs per serving. I topped with just a sprinkle of fresh grated Dutch Smoked Gouda and some Skyline brand Oyster Crackers, I could make a meal out of the Cheese and Crackers!

 

I also prepared a Hot Hammy and Cheese Sandwich. I used Oscar Mayer Carver Board Ham, Sargento Ultra Light Swiss Cheese, and Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. In a small skillet I heated the slices of Ham and while that was heating I split the Muffin in half and toasted it in the toaster. To assemble just put the Ham on one of the Muffin halves and top the Ham with the Sargento Swiss and add the other half of the Muffin, the Swiss will start melting immediately. A simple but quite hearty dinner! For dessert later a fresh baked Pillsbury Apple Turnover, a nice way to end the day.

Today’s Menu: Grilled Ham and Cheese w/ Tomato Soup

It was comfort food at it’s finest tonight, Grilled Ham and Cheese and a bowl of Tomato Soup! For my sandwich I used Oscar Mayer Carver Board Ham and for the Cheese I used a slice of Sargento Ultra Thin Swiss and 2 slices of Sargento Reduced Fat Colby – Jack. I topped it with some Kraft Reduced Fat Mayo w/ Olive Oil. I served it on Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. I buttered the outside of each slice of bread with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter and grilled the sandwich browning both sides. I Love all the different types of Grilled Cheese and the different ways and toppings you can do with them. Turned out delicious!

For the soup I used Amy’s  Organic Light in Sodium – Cream of Tomato Soup which has been my Tomato Soup of choice lately. Not only great tasting but it’s only 110 calories and 19 carbs! I left the Soup info and description at the end of the post. For dessert later a Jello Sugar free Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

It Was Early Morning Yesterday I Was Up Before The Dawn! Rocking to some classic Super Tramp this morning while making breakfast. I’m not sure if it was my attempts at singing or the smell of crisp Turkey Bacon frying that woke everyone up this morning!

 

I started my day off with a delicious, healthy, and low carb breakfast. I made Pancakes using New Hope Mills Pancake Mix, only 200 calories and 6 carbs per serving. A serving is a 1/2 cup of pancake mix which you can make into 3 – 4 pancakes. I topped it with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter and Joseph’s Sugar Free Maple Flavored Syrup. The Syrup is 35 calories and 9 carbs per serving, a serving is 1/4 cup. I had a side of 3 strips of Oscar Mayer Low Sodium Turkey Bacon which is 35 calories per slice. A great and healthy way to start the day!

Today’s Menu: Whole Wheat Ham, Turkey, and Cheese Panini Wraps w/ Crinkle Fries

 

Light, simple, and delicious, that was dinner! I had Whole Wheat Ham, Turkey, and Cheese Panini Wraps. I used Hungry Girl Flatout Flatbread made with 100% Whole Wheat w/ Flax. If you haven’t tried these your missing out. Always fresh and only 90 calories and 15 carbs. Using the Flatbread I topped it with Oscar Mayer Carver Board Turkey, Kroger brand Hickory Sliced Ham, and Sargento’s Reduced Fat Colby/Jack Cheese. I started using Sargento’s recently. It’s great tasting Cheese and only 50 calories and 1 carb per slice! After assembling I folded the Wrap making it into a Sandwich and put it in the Panini Press for 4 minutes. It came out toasted and the Cheese just melting, love that Press. For a side I had Ore Ida Crinkle Fries, 1/2 Serving. The picture I’m showing is a full serving of Fries, the meal was for 2. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free Topping, about 80 calories total.

Today’s Menu: Grilled Ham and Swiss Panini Sandwich w/ Kicked – Up Chili Beans

Putting that Panini Grill to use! Had a Panini Grilled Ham and Swiss Sandwich. I used Healthy Life Whole Grain Sliced Bread, Oscar Mayer Carver Board Ham, 2% Swiss Cheese, and some Kraft Mayo w/ Olive Oil for the sandwich. The Beans were Joan of Arc Spicy Chili Beans and to those added Jack Daniels Smoked BBQ Sauce, crumbled Turkey Bacon, and a few splashes of frank’s Red Hot to liven it all up a bit! Washed it all down with an ice – cold Diet Dr. Pepper that had I put in the freezer to get that slushy layer!  If you have read my posts for a while you may have noticed I have almost switched over completly from Aunt Millie’s Whole Grain products to Healthy Life Whole Grain products. The reason being Healthy Life is a little lower in calories and carbs  and also somewhat lower in price, plus the taste and freshness on all their products are very good.
